A first-time attendee at the sale was disappointed that he could not purchase a Capped Bust half dollar in the auction. I told him that if he could tell me what was on the edge of the coin I would send him one. He answered correctly, and I supplied him with an 1834 half dollar that he then had to attribute. He has become a friend and one of the brightest Young Numismatists I know.
